OK guys, here's my Problem
From everything I've read, and searched you need a super fast system
Dual 2Ghz Min, Lots of RAM 2 GB Min, A good Video Card and at least One
24" Monitor in order to get the best out of Aperture!!
I've seen the quicktimes at the Apple Site, and how much you want to bet
that Apple just gave these 3 guys a Quad 2.5Ghz machine with Gobs of RAM
and Two 30" Monitors with the best Video Card Available and said, Guys,
use the system and tell me how good it is!!
Right now I'm a Pro ruining CS2 and Capture on 2 Powerbooks for my D2X
and D2H's (NOT D2Hs) I bet if Install Aperture on my 1GB 17" machine
with 1GB of RAM, It will lock-Up, and if I dared do it on my old 15"
667Mhz Machine, It will explode!!
I searched, if you Pimp out the new Quad-Core G5, with the
top-of-the-line Video Card, Two 30" Monitors and 16GB of Ram with 2 500
GB Drives, it will run you a bit over $23K!!!
Knowing the Life-Span of Computers today (around 6 MO) a $23K investment
is not at the top of my list!!
I see all the Kewl features of Aperture, But It is my thought that
Aperture is somewhat meant to sell Apple hardware!!!
Don't get me wrong, I've been an Apple fan since I used the Apple II
back in 1981, And I've been a fan since. but at this time in my career,
my main budget is for Cameras, lenses and Memory cards, Not a new
computer when the 2 that I have work just fine for me!!
Let's discuss these items because I'm trying to justify this software
and I can't afford another machine right now!!
